  •  heh - nice bit of framing (3+ / 0-)
    FDR pulled it more toward socialism, Reagan swung it back a bit.
    FDR,  thru Glass-Steagle, for example, helped to seriously moderate the boom-panic banking and economic cycles that had plagued this country's economy since its founding. Arguably, he helped to save the capitalists from their own excesses and greed.

    Reagan did more than "swing it back a bit"; he did everything he could to begin the process of dismantling the New Deal social programs and set loose the dogs of unregulated banking and finalization.

    Please, blow your smoke elsewhere.

    The "extreme wing" of the Democratic Party is the wing that is hell-bent on protecting the banks and credit card companies. ~ Kos
